What a fantastic experience! Tsutomu was very accommodating and a patient instructor. I learned a great deal about the process and local history. The translations by his daughter were spot on and she even provided helpful directions for local sight seeing!

Highly recommend this experience for craft and book lovers! Seeing and experiencing the amount of care and craftsmanship that goes into bookmaking has been a highlight of our Kyoto visit. Tsutomu and Yoko were extremely welcoming, thorough in their instructions, and happy to answer any curious questions we had about this wonderful Japanese bookmaking technique (as well as recommendations for the nearby area). Thank you so much for the enjoyable experience :)

A wonderful experience. As well as making a book, it is a lesson in care, craft, and beauty. I learned about color theory and perception. I recommend to all.

Tsutomu is a master bookmaker. He and his daughter make a great team. They provided step by step instructions in a clear manner, helped us individually, and let us practice. I felt very welcome. This is a unique experience that was very enjoyable.

J'ai beaucoup aimé apprendre les étapes de la reliure fait main. C'est tout un art! Tsutomu a été patient et m'a montré des tours de main. Sa fille était présente et expliquait les étapes, un très bon duo. Ce fut une très belle expérience. Je recommande fortement.
